I don't agree Vern.

First I think it should work - but even if it doesn't IBM need to fix it.

Anything that generates "INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR. CONTACT SERVICE REP." means what it says. there is a compiler bug and it needs fixing.

Hi Alan

No need for a PMR, this would probably not be considered an error. Rather, this is a perfect candidate for submitting an RFE. All you need for that is to get an IBM ID - it is based on an email, I suggest not using your company email, as it is lost if you go to a different company. Use a GMAIL or HOTMAIL or other generally-available free public email address. Maybe reserve it for this use, the IBM ID doesn't even go look for authentication from it.

A colleague where I work tried to use @list() like this:

And he got a compiler error:

He was trying to find somebody who could submit a PMR.

I thought that was a cool application of it. I've always wished we had a way to make comparisons with this syntax. Not only for the equal comparison, but how much simpler a *LE comparison would be for opening an SQL cursor with a SETLL type comparison, with four key columns!
